“One-Punch Man” manga greenlit to be a television anime

Anime adaptation of a manga adaptation of a web-comic features a hero who can defeat any foe with just one punch

Crunchyroll (by Paul Chapman):

Fans of ridiculous things can rejoice, because One-Punch Man is being adapted into a TV anime.

One-Punch Man chronicles the adventures of Saitama, an unassuming, bald fellow who is actually an impossibly strong super-hero capable of felling even the most horrifying foes with just one punch. Unfortunately, Saitama has become bored with his power and he rarely gets the credit he deserves.

One-Punch Man is a fairly unique manga. It began life in 2009 as a web comic published by an author with the pseudonym of ONE.

You can find the original version of One-Punch Man here.

In 2012, the web comic was adapted into a more traditional manga by artist Yusuke Murata. This version of One-Punch Man is published digitally via Shueisha’s Young Jump Web Comics website. Murata’s remake of One-Punch Man is published in the English language by Viz Media.

More details about the upcoming anime will be announced at the Anime Japan 2015 expo on March 21 and 22, 2015.
